Astronomy fellow looking for 10 billion-year-old secrets in cosmic history

Chelsea-cropped 980The Faculty welcomes Chelsea Sharon, Physics & Astronomy, as the inaugural William & Caroline Herschel Postdoctoral Fellow. She will spend the next two years here conducting research on galaxy evolution, looking back 10 billion years to learn more about why galaxies in the present day universe appear the way they do. Her research interests complement that of many researchers in the Department including Christine Wilson (CRC in Extragalactic Star Formation), Laura Parker, James Wadsley and Hugh Couchman. The Herschel fellowship was created through the William & Caroline Herschel Fund at McMaster, the result of a gift from Bill Harris, professor emeritus in the Department of Physics & Astronomy.
